president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
of the president obama has just a one-point lead among likely voters. three new swing state polls show the president still in the lead, although with a margin that is shrinking in florida, virginia and ohio. and instead of campaigning, the president went to the red cross in washington, d.c., yesterday. >> this is a tough time for a lot of people. millions of folks all across the eastern seaboard. but america is tougher. and we're tougher because we pull together, we leave nobody behind, we make sure that we respond as a nation and remind ourselves that whenever an american is in need, all of us stand together to make sure that we're providing the help that's necessary. >> mitt romney will resume a full campaign schedule today, stumping in florida. he held a disaster relief event yesterday in ohio. >> we've got people right now that are having some hard times because of this terrible hurricane and the storm that followed it, and your generosity will make a difference. so i want to thank you. >> i want to bring in usa today's washington bureau chief susan page. maureen dowd writes this t
in the battle ground state. find the people that voted for obama in 08 because hope and change sounded good and now know it didn't happen and it was not real. hope and change is now anger and frustration and divide and conquer. we'll not fall for that are we. we have 10 day to go here and as you look at closing arguments, we are talking about what it take to get people back to work and the kind of leadership that mitt romney has provided throughout his life and running at problems to solve problems. there have been hundreds of millions of negative advertising. >>> and there you have paul ryan out there in ohio, that key battle ground state. and presidential race is now a dead heat. clear politicings average showed mitt romney pulled ahead 48-47. and fox news battle ground shows the race is close in ohio. and romney has pulled within three points of the president. that has both candidates making a major push for the women and undied -- undecided voters. joining us now. the black helicopterers. dick morris, thank you for joining us today. >> good to be here uma. i noticed something interestin
difference, because obama has over 800 of these field offices, concentrated in the swing states, you know, the eight or 10 or 12 states that are really crucial in this election. the romney campaign has about 300. so there's april quantitative difference, and there is some political science research showing that just having that field office, being on the ground in a certain community, does increase your share of the vote. but then there's a qualitative difference as well. the obama campaign, it's almost like a starbucks or a mcdonald's, a franchise operation, where every office is very much the same. it's all controlled by headquarters. they're all working off the same game plan, right down to every single office has what looks like this sort of nice grass-roots touch, a poster on the wall that says i support the president because -- and then everybody's handwritten in their reasons that they love obama underneath. every single office has that same poster. so it's very standardized, very controlled, very disciplined, and they're all working off the same plan. romney actually does not have
, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowing into that side. that's romney. we have seen him improve his performance in independents and womens. you can call it what you want and the media contends it isn't momentum but i bet the president's campaign is wishing they that that momentum. >> to that point, yes, the obama campaign wishes it had some of that momentum because i tell you what really going on. the president is flatlining. >> i think he hit a ceiling for two reasons. his approval rating hit a ceiling as far back as april. this president has been around 47 or 48% all through the year. there's no lift to the obama presidency, and now that he and romney have com
and six points. he is also going to be hitting the state of pennsylvania, the state that the obama campaign says is not in play, but is increasingly looking like a state that is becoming more competitive. jim acosta, cnn, portsmouth, new hampshire. >>> new york governor cuomo is speaking right now at this press conference in new york city. has the latest information on the sandy cleanup. one highlight to point out, he has said that all power has been restored to manhattan. but let's listen in for just a minute. >> from what was horrendous damage. and the worst damage that the subway system had ever seen, that people can remember, and 80% is back. so that is just a great, great job. the service between brooklyn and queens and manhattan is being restored immediately. the four, five, six, and seven train will immediately begin to run. the f, the j, the d, the m will run later this afternoon. the staten island railway will have limited service beginning later today. the entire team didn't really did an extraordinary job. they've been work straight. i don't know how many of them are eve
election day, president obama and governor mitt romney are crisscrossing key battleground states, governor romney holding three rallies in florida, and president obama stopped in new hampshire and talk about his promise for the future. >> the unemployment rate is falling. manufacturing, coming back to our shores. our assembly lines are humming again. housing prices are starting to pick up. housing starts are on the move. we have a lot of work to do but, new hampshire, the country has come too far for us to turn back now. >> governor romney holding three rallies across florida today where he is calling for more partisan cooperation in washington. i'll see you again on the fox news channel at 6:00 eastern. right now we go back to "the journal editorial report",. >> welcome would to journal -- "the journal editorial report." aisle paul gigot. the election focuses on a mall group of key states but not the states either campaign or the political pundits might have expected. wisconsin, pennsylvania, and michigan, all of which president obama carried by double digits in 2008. my guess t

reasons. the first, president obama comes to ohio and likes to take credit for getting our state back on track. but we know that's not true. it's the work that the governor and i have done with all of you to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes. [applause] here is my second reason and this one is personal for me. my youngest son is 18-year-old and he voted for the first time this year in a presidential election. a couple of weeks ago before a friday night football game his friend were at our house and they were in his room and i decided i wonder when they're talking about, girls, the football game t next concert they're going to go to, maybe kid rock. but i went upstairs and i was listening outside the door and they didn't know i was there. they were talking about this election because they know their future is is riding on four more days. if i could talk to the women in the audience. and i see there are just a few women here tonight. you know the democrats have talked a lot lately about this war on women. let me tell you what i think
congresswoman in those states show an advantage for president obama. so with only ten days left, how does governor romney win enough of those battleground states to close the deal? >> think he needs to continue to talk about what he has been talking about since denver. we saw when the american people would ko see the governor unfiltered and to talk about truly what he has done as a leader. we see the american people are responding to that. the governor has a plan. unlike the president, there are some new ideas in that plan. >> gregg: the president has the nice glossy brochure. [ laughter ] >> the only thing knew about that is glossy brochure. >> gregg: it's really glossy. president obama leads in three separate polls in ohio by two points in each one of them the cnn poll and purple strategies poll. in ohio, senator rob portman admitted this to nbc. if we don't win ohio, it's tough to see us winning the election nationally. it's possible, but it's very difficult. how does romney specifically close the gap there in ohio? >> i think there are a couple things to be said here. there are other
there with its four corridors. president obama won the state in 2008 by 9%. joining us from denver this morning is the editorial page editor with the denver post. what are the top issues for colorado voters? guest: like everywhere else, it is the economy and jobs. energy is a big issue and immigration is a big issue as well. host: what are the demographics of voters in colorado? who votes? >> 52% are women. 48% are men. republicans have about a 20,000 vote advantage. the state is equally divided. one-third are republican, one- third are democrats, and the rest are unaffiliated. you try to figure out which way they are going to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of
indicating they intend to put real pressure on the president in these states while the obama campaign would like to wish it's 2008. the reality is they are forced to play some defense in more states that they once believed were safer for the president. the obama campaign is taking the threat seriously enough that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in
the cleanup from hurricane sandy. president obama traveled to new jersey today, the state hardest hit by the massive storm to meet with hurricane victims and state officials led by republican governor chris christie. the two men toured southern new jersey on the ground and from the air over flooded streets, flattened houses and piers washed out to sea. reporters did not accompany the president and governor christie as they flew on marine one, the president's helicopter. governor christie, who had been spending most of his days prior to the storm attacking the president on the campaign trail, today thanked him. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. and i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state, who suffered some loss. luckily, we haven't suffered that much loss of life. and we thank god for that. this is the worst storm that i've seen in m
in the pelican state has six electoral votes. in 20 08, president obama had the victory in iowa. >> mitt romney travel to the important groun b ground states which is aide important speech on the economy. however, it was no big change for his team of the week. it is the candidate for big change. >> what this requires is a change change in the last four years. it requires the put aside the small, petty and demand the scale of change we deserve. we need real change, big change. >> he also returned to his line of attack that there's no second term agenda. the with the stimulus, but three years after, that is for a government but it will not stimulate the private sector any better than it did this stimulus for years ago. >> as it turns out, the site at this construction site has been receiving stimulants money it tracks the government spending and the government received a small business loans of over $1 million. this speech was the same as the government announcing that it was going to purchase 2% of this quarter this year beating estimates. but not as good as past predictions from tfrom the presi
the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praisi
for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke the fears and the emotions of people down in that portion of the state? >> well, it just -- i think mitt romney is finally just getting absolutely desperate. it is him learning a little bit of -- him realizing he cannot win, just like you said, w
the battle ground states this weekend. president obama was in new hampshire and has only four electoral votes but with a close race those votes could make a difference. mitt romney was in florida which began early voting this weekend. he held rallies in three florida cities telling supporters it's time for a change. >> so that on -- >> supporters of the -- they do four more years, four more years. i like ten more days. i feel better. >> ten days and you will be stepping into a voting booth and making a defining choice about the future of our country. >> and today again is it nine days. we have hurricane sandy heading toward the east coast as we have been talking about both campaigns have been forced to change the travel schedule. romney scrapped a trip to virginia set for today. he will head to ohio. the president planned to head to florida tomorrow but he pushed his trip to tonight to beat the storm. >>> and face the nation will be taking a look at this final stretch before election day. bob schieffer chats with republican senator john mccain and chicago mayor rom emanuel today. big question
on on education, science, and technology. it is bad for youngstown state, and obama's plan is better for the future of america. obama's education plan is better for the future of america. he is committed to hiring 100,00 0 new science, technology, and math teachers. committed to cutting the rate of inflation of college costs in half and to the student loan reform program, the single most important thing nobdody knows about. this alone justifies his reelection if you believe in the future. the old student loan system worked like -- the federal government paid the banks to make loands and guaranteed 93% of the loans. the new system -- under that old system, it meant we dropeped to 16th in the world in college degrees. a perscription for disaster. almost every job is created by someone with a degree. we can't afford to be 16th in the world. so what did the president and congress do? what did congressman ryan do? they passed a law to change the system. we say, here are the people who qualify and the yget the loans at a lower interest rate. every student in the country who gets one of the
